These Surprise Military Reunions Stole Our Hearts
It’s time to break out the tissues. We have seen emotional videos of military reunions, when soldiers are reunited with their loved ones. The homecoming is a treasured moment. If it’s captured on camera, everyone can enjoy that special embrace that has been long overdue. Try not to cry at these five heartwarming reunions. We don’t blame you if you fail the challenge.
Take Me Out To The Ball Game
It was just a regular day at the baseball park for Josiah James. He was attending Family Day with his mother and sister. When he was chosen to throw the opening pitch, he had no idea the man behind the catcher’s mask was his father, Staff Sgt. Jesse James. He had just got back from South Korea. Jesse lowered his mask and everyone heard Josiah scream, “Daddy!”
Daddy’s Little Princess
Soldiers in the Pennsylvania Army National Guard had just returned home from Kuwait. No one was more excited than three-year-old, Lily Gudaitis. She wore a red, white, and blue tutu and a shirt that read, “Your princess missed you.” When her father, Sgt. Charles Gudaitis, stepped off the travel bus, she ran towards him and jumped into his arm for one of the greatest military reunions ever.
Reunited For Her Birthday
All Germaine wanted for her 80th birthday was to have her whole family there. That includes her son, Cory, who she thought was still stationed at Fort Bragg. What she didn’t know was that he was making a surprise visit home. When he showed up at the party, all Germaine could do was scream, “Oh my God!”
More Than A FaceTime Chat
Some military reunions have unique circumstances. A hearing-impaired young girl just wanted to talk to her father, who was serving overseas on deployment. When her teacher told her that her father was calling on FaceTime to chat with her, she had no idea he was actually outside the classroom. When he walked into the classroom, she couldn’t believe what was happening.
Just One More Hug
Her father was leaving for the Mediterranean with the Spanish Royal Air Force. But that didn’t stop this young girl from running after him to give him one more hug. He wasn’t expecting to see her run to him when he turned around, but he gladly accepted the hug, regardless of the fact that he broke protocol.
